A Long Way Away

This dynamic space adventure offers two stories – on one side it’s a journey from outer space into the sea; from the other side it’s a journey from the deep sea to a distant planet. An appealing little alien descends past planets and stars on its topsy-turvy path toward a deep underwater world to sleep. The other story features the little alien rising and moving upward toward his home where he is reunited with his family. Precise color shapes recall Matisse’s style of organic form and graphic design. An artistic and thoughtful tale from the author of Along a Long Road (2011) Ages 3-6
